Mmm, I miss Bob's Java Jive. Thankfully I'll be living there again in a few weeks. Did you ever see it when it had monkeys in the back?
And, because I read your review, I think the mix of people that are there at any given time is the best part about it. Last time I was there, there was this amazing man who, despite probably being somewhat of a Tacoma-version of a hick, managed actually to look like an old hipster dressed all in black with aviators. He was telling everyone about the time he saw D.B. Cooper.
